WICHITA, Kan. (AP) - Gov. Sam Brownback says the federal government is not doing a good-enough job protecting the country against the Ebola virus, requiring the state to step up to protect Kansans.

Brownback had no specifics Tuesday about what more the federal government should do. Nor did he offer details about what Kansas is doing, other than to say that health officials meeting over the issue. Brownback says the state plans to make statements and issue advisories this week.

Lt. Gov. Jeff Colyer says Kansas has a hazards plan, but offered no details on how it would deal with Ebola.

Brownback says the federal government’s response is too casual and is not as intense as needed at the U.S. border or in west African countries where Ebola is originating.
